This is the tea event my girlfriend and I worked on. The theme was Give My Regards to Broadway, using the comedy and tragedy masks. The colors were red, black and gold. I do think red tablecloths would have looked better. I wish we had the budget and decor to mimic something like this below.
We used what the former caterer had. Beth used to have a catering business and now she is heavily involved in the church. She and another woman prepared the food for the luncheon.
Unfortunately no one took any good photos. With all of the white, it tends to look like a wedding.
This event took place at Karen's church.
Each table had a centerpiece....consisting of the comedy and tragedy masks. This charger looks pink, but it is bright red. I came up with the design after my friend Karen brought me a star dish from the dollar store. I suggested spraying the star dishes black. Initially, the tablecloths were thought to be red, so the black would show up. After the fact, the tablecloths tuned out to be white, so I added red chargers to the centerpieces. You can picture a more dramatic look if the chair covers and tablecloths were in the colors like the invitation and program.
I tweaked it in my photo program and added more text inside. I took them to be printed and folded at Staples.
Here is another sign for the wall behind the band and singers.
Here are the masks I found online. I used them on gold glitter foam board from Michaels.
It had a sticky back, so I stuck two together, so people could see the masks from both side.
I wanted to make cookies to match the theme as a party favor, however the first batch of cookies did not turn out. My girlfriend made me promise I would not make them. She thought I was doing too much work!
Here's my lovely friend Karen, all decked out as Velma Kelly from the Chicago Play.
This picture my husband took of me before I went to the event. I am playing Roxie Hart from the Chicago play. My son and his financee came over this weekend to help my husband with the framing of the upstairs balcony cover. It is almost finished, except for painting and hiring a roofer. Oh and my husband wants to screen it in.
Stay tuned for some Halloween tablescapes. I will leave you with my pumpkin faces...
